We teamed up with Le Grand Courtage a few weeks ago to collaborate on the perfect signature drink for our first floral workshop, and I think we nailed it. I’ve been so, so excited to share this recipe with you! It’s just punchy enough, and even cuter than it is sweet.

Obviously I’m a bit bias on account of the flower petal sprinkle aspect (we all know I have an unhealthy love for sprinkles), but we put our own little twist on the Lillet Rose Spring cocktail from Martha Stewart on their cocktail boardFor those of you that aren’t local to attend the workshop, these would also be cute for bridal showers, signature wedding cocktails, or even girls’ night in!

And for my last fruit DIY trick, I introduce you to these fruit koozies! Bet you didn’t see that one coming did you? Yeah, neither did I, but sometimes you just roll with koozie punches when they scream to be made into fruit, you know? You can see all of the juicy (get it?) details over on Julep today!

In other news, while everyone is going back to school shopping I’m rooting around for holiday inspired things for fall and Christmas shoots. You’d be amazed how difficult it is to come by this time of year unless you’re hitting up Hobby Lobby’s Christmas in July section like a maniac. All of this to say be nice to the girl in front of you in line buying only mint green and red things during tax free weekend this week! I’ll catch you tomorrow with another summery treat!

I can’t think of one get together that isn’t made better with confetti, but especially edible confetti. I’m not talking about the cheesy grocery store sprinkles, I’m talking gold, mint, peach, and any other colors you can dream up because that’s exactly what you’re going to be making after this DIY edible confetti tutorial. I think it might be my newest addiction.

I mean, the possibilities here are endless. Shapes, colors, sizes, you name it. It’s practically as exciting as deciding on ice cream at Disney World, which is really saying something. Here’s the how-to and a few tips on making your own…

DIY // Fruit macarons

Yes, it’s only been five days since I’ve last played with my food. This time I had a little encouragement though after a Friday morning meeting with Bite Macarons here in Houston, when naturally I left with two dozen colorful cookies…

Seeing as how the fruit trend is still going full force and I’m surrounding myself with bad macaron influences, I decided I’d try my hand at a little fruit cookie action to make my college art career worthwhile. Luckily my career there wasn’t super impressive and there’s this magical thing called Amazon Prime that sells pre-made royal icing goodies, so these are sure to be do-able for the masses. With all of this in mind, these DIY fruit macarons are surely destined to reignite the dying fruit basket, or kabob, or cake.. I could go on.
